Clarkefield railway station is located on the Bendigo line in Victoria, Australia. It serves the town of Clarkefield opening in December 1862.[1]

Disused station Rupertswood is located between Clarkefield and Sunbury. Clarkefield was the junction for the Lancefield branch line which operated between 1881 and 1956. Catch Points were in use at Clarkefield in 1929. The station was historically known as Lancefield Junction for this reason.

Platforms & services[edit]

Clarkefield has two side island platforms. It is serviced by V/Line Bendigo and Echuca line services.[2][3] In the morning, trains to Melbourne depart from Platform 2, and trains to Bendigo depart from Platform 1, this reverses in the afternoon. This is to allow services in the peak direction of travel to use the single 160 km/h track that was upgraded in 2006 as part of the Regional Fast Rail project.
